5500 Dual EQ with Range Switch description:

The API 5500 Dual EQ with Range Switch is a 2-channel dual EQ featuring a range switch and a 19" rackmountable chassis. The 5500 has a balanced input, a true straight-wire bypass, an integrated power supply with noiseless muting and a range control that expands its versatility to mastering applications.

The 5500 contains no integrated circuits in its signal path. The gain comes from two hand-built 2520 Operational Amplifiers in each channel. The balanced input is handled by a 2510 Discrete Operational Amplifier. The range of the amplitude controls can be reduced to 1/2 or 1/4 of their stated scale, providing a means to adjust the tonal balance with finer resolution in an even gentler manner.

The 5500 also features a true hardwire bypass that wires the output connector directly to the input. Shortly after the power is first applied, or immediately after it is lost, a special circuit enables "bypass mode" so that power thumps are never heard. The 5500's input XLR is connected to an active balanced circuit. The unit's output XLR is driven from a transformer coupled output and can drive any load from 600 ohms or more to full output capability.

The main features of the API 5500 Dual EQ with Range Switch include:

  • 2-Channel Dual EQ
  • 2x Range Switches to Individually Alter Gain Steps
  • Peak/Shelf Switch on Hi & Lo Bands
  • True Hardwire Bypass
  • Balanced In & Out on XLR
  • Unbalanced Input on 1/4"
  • EQ In/Out Switch
  • Size: 19”
